The place smells amazing of all the hardwood and meats that are cooked here. Byob for an enjoyable experience. The food and sides are very good. I recommend getting some jerky too.

Next door to our motel. We popped in for dinner. The girl serving could not have been friendlier or more helpful to two bemused tourists. Lovely BBQ food, tender pulled pork and ribs Very reasonable prices I cannot recommend more highly.

We heard it was the best ever... not so much! It was pasta noodles and the cheese was pooled underneath. Need to work on the right combo of cheeses to adhere to pasta better. Try sharp cheddar and Monterey Jack ( the fat cheese and the creamy cheese)

Super, especially the corn fritters! Haven't had those in years. Had forgotten till a moment ago about the nice, creamy mac and cheese which we also indulged in! The ribs were slightly fatty by my way of thinking, but they were still extremely delicious! They had a smokey hint to them which was not surprising, since the restaurant has a... More

I can eat the ribs, carrot cole slaw and potato salad all day. Busy place, cooked to order, may be a waiting line for good reason!!

After reading good reviews, my husband and I stopped by while staying in Sturbridge overnite. We each got the brisket platter and were very, very pleased. We both chose the potato salad as one side, which was very good. He chose the baked beans (not so good) and I had the tomato salad (very good). Their corn bread wasn't bad,... More

We stopped at BT's Smokehouse on a Sunday afternoon to pick up food to bring for a picnic lunch. It was really busy which we weren't expecting. The line was quite long but it was worth the wait! The atmosphere is what you would expect for a BBQ joint... nothing fancy. The staff were friendly as busy as they were.... More

You order at a counter. But, don't let that influence what you think of the food. Good prices and GREAT FOOD!

Visited BT's for a barbeque fix, wasn't sure what to order and took advice from the girl at the counter, she recommended one of the plates where you choose three meats, and have corn bread plus two sides, we chose ribs, pulled pork and brisket and added a portion of fries and onion rings. It is handed to you on... More

We stopped here on a Sunday. WE got the triple pig ??... we used a 10% checkin coupon from yelp so saved a bit. It was MORE than enough food for my very hungry boyfriend and me. The pulled pork was amazing, brisket was delicious -- BF said ribs were great... (I'm not a fan personally in general). The highlight... More
